President Barack Obama is exploring executive orders to help prevent mass shootings in America, Vice President Joe Biden (pictured in AP fle photo) said Wednesday. "The president is going to act. Executive orders, executive action, can be taken," Biden told reporters before meetings with groups representing survivors of mass shootings. "We haven't decided what this is yet, but we're compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and all the rest of the Cabinet members." Legislative action also is needed, Biden said.
